As promised, a little bit of photo's from this past Father's Day present, Bulkhead from the Animated Transformers line.
I am totally digging this guy, I like the color, the look (both robot and vehicle), and look at that mug! Actually Bulkhead sort of reminds me of a Dinky Toy I had when I was little. The Dinky Toy didn't transform, but it was sort of the same stature as Bulkhead's vehicle mode. It was about the same color, had treads, and when you flipped a switch a missile launcher would rotate up out of the back of the vehicle. I believe it was from the show U.F.O by Gerry Anderson. At the time I didn't know that, it was just a cool looking tank truck, and heavy, that thing was like a brick.
Anyway, Bulkhead here seems like a chunky, knock over everything, sort of guy like me, maybe that's why I like him. I will admit, I've only seen about five minutes of the new Transformers show, but I do like what I've read about bulkhead on the package, he specializes in breaking things, but he enjoys being creative and would rather sculpt than destroy! Sweet, no wonder, he's an artist, him and my Kyle Raynor Green Lantern should have lots to talk about.
I think it's funny that my "brother in toys" at Toyriffic received a Animated Transformer from his children for Father's Day as well, that tells me we are raising them kids right!
